About us

WHO ARE WE

We’re a totally independent record store based in Bangor NI.  Bending Sound was born from a love of music, a passion for records and the frustration of being in a town where the fabulous record shops (and they really were fabulous) had vanished.  We opened the doors of our independent record shop on Record Store Day 2017.  There’s no substitute for rummaging the racks in a real record shop, so we resisted offering mail order until the arrival of 2020, when we all needed records more than ever but we were grounded – so we created bendingsound.co.uk, which thanks to your support – we decided to keep going.  

WHAT DO WE SELL

Records.  Just records.  Oh, and some Rega turntables (to play your records on)

CAN’T FIND WHAT YOU WANT

Our website displays only the titles we currently have in stock and ready to ship (and preorder titles).  If you need a title not featured on the site then drop us a line at hello@bendingsound.co.uk and we’ll try to get what you need.

PREOWNED RECORDS

We do stock a selection of preowned records, available INSTORE ONLY and not available on our website.  Come and visit us at 2 Bank Lane, Bangor, County Down

If you have a record collection you’re considering parting with, then call us on 02891225510

We aim to provide the best online record shopping experience we can, with accurate availability (if it’s on the website then it’s in our racks), clear pricing (all pricing includes VAT) and fast shipping  – but there really is no substitute for a physical record store, so visit our real shop when you can.
